Pros: Raw Performance is great
More power efficient than other cards
Minimal RGB, just an led really on side
Cons: Coil whine is noticeable, had to drop an egg for that
Overall Review: Overall pleased with the card and it’s performance. Drivers are good so far. No game crashes yet.
Pros: Game is fast paced and fun. Try it out if you haven’t played. For a 4 yr game it has aged well.
Overall Review: What are you waiting for buy it
Pros: RGB is cool, wrist pad is a nice touch
Cons: Keys do not respond like I hoped they would since they are Kalith brown switches. These keys feel mushy and don’t really feel like cherry mx switches at all. Not horrible but not to my preference
Overall Review: If you need something budget this is ok. I’m sure there are better options out there though
Pros: - VRM has heatsink
- Has just enough bells and whistles to make it a great buy
- BIOS recognizes 3000 series out of the box
- Has decent amount of Usb 3.0 ports
- Great price
Cons: - Wish the M.2 slot had a heatsink with thermal pads to help out installed nvme drives
- Why is there just one usb type c port on the back?
Overall Review: Specs
CPU: AMD R5 3600X
RAM: 32GB DD4 3200 G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series
MB: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX
NVME: 1TB Intel 660p M.2
SSD: 1TB Seagate BarraCuda
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super
Cooler: Corsair H100x
Pros: - Fast
- Overclocked already
- Handles everything I throw at it with ease
I thought about getting the R7 3700X over this one but the price during the black friday sales events couldn't allow me to pass this up. Performance is great in when I have couple instances of Visual Studio and SSMS open. Handles games with ease. I have no worries about running the latest title for the next couple of years
Cons: - HOT
This cpu tends to get pretty hot with temps 70C+ on the stock cooler. Instead paired it with my Corsair H110x and temps did not rise about 64C under full load and 24C idle.
Overall Review: Glad I purchased this cpu and meets all my current needs with 6 cores / 12 threads.
Pros: Plays my library of games on ultra/high settings. BorderLands3 and CoD Modern Warfare run smooth.
Cons: The card is long. Just make sure you have the space in your case to house the card. Just barely had enough clearance between the card and front mounted radiator fans
Pros: Fast, well priced
Cons: None really, it works well.
Overall Review: Would buy again
